On Tuesday, various news outlets reported that someone had left raw bacon scattered around the field near the site of Ramadan prayers in Staten Island, presumably to offend the Muslims worshipers.

But now, a New York City newspaper has received an anonymous call from a person claiming to have discarded the spoiled bacon– and there was allegedly no offense intended to Muslims.
The caller, seemingly a little tongue-tied, told the Staten Island Advance he was putting it out for stray animals to eat because it had gone bad.

“Hi, Deborah,” the anonymous man said on the voice mail of the local reporter. “This is– I was reading the article about the horrible incident of bacon and Muslims in the park and I wanted to let you know that is not my intention,” stopping himself before saying his name.If Georgia puts out excess blue berry pancakes for the birds, is that a hate crime if some bizarre Swedish cult thinks that blueberries offend the ancient God of Lingonberries?
“I had put the bacon there. It was going bad in my trunk and I put it out for the scavengers like the opossums and the raccoons and sea gulls, and I did not intend for that to cause anybody any problems.”
“It was not any (inaudible) anti-Muslim act, and I did not want to offend anybody in way. Thank you and have a good day,” he concluded.
